Order of Malta Australia


Supporting Nursing students in Palliative Care studies


Each year the Central East Region supports and sponsors the Palliative Care Essay award for a third year student in the School of Nursing at The University of Notre Dame Australia – Sydney campus. This award is open to all students who are undertaking the Palliative Care Course of Study.

The essay examines the notion of dying with dignity through the analyses of people’s beliefs about dying with dignity and comparing these to current literature about a palliative approach to care and the Catholic Health Australia: Code of Ethical Standards.

The 2017 winner was Molly McCulloch who was presented with her award at a morning tea at the School of Nursing in Sydney. This was attended by local members of the Order of Malta.
